Wifi connections for after hours updates RRS feed

  • Question

  • My company is moving to WiFi only and we run updates nightly.  Users log in then authenticate to the wifi.  The problem I have is after the computers logged into then are connected to WiFi.  After updates the computer reboots then no user is logged in.  How do I continue doing updates to the computer if its not connected to the network anymore.  

    Is there a way to have to wifi connect without a normal user? aka. A generic one that only enable the computer wifi connection to continue updates.

    >>Is there a way to have to wifi connect without a normal user?

    I am afraid there is no way could achieve it. 

    Just as an authenticated wired client must submit a set of credentials to be validated before being allowed to send frames over the wired Ethernet intranet. An IEEE 802.1X wireless client must also perform authentication prior to being able to send traffic over its wireless access point (AP) port, and over the network.

    For your reference:
